We really are a prurient nation, at least that’s what commercial television seems to think based upon the JackoTV schedule:

    Almost all the networks and cable channels are feverishly at work on, or are getting ready to re-air, a string of Michael Jackson programs.

    Among the upcoming programming highlights:

    Barbara Walters is slated to interview Jackson’s older brother, Jermaine, on ABC;s “20/20” tonight.

    VH1 has a new show, “Michael Jackson Sex Scandal” airing Sunday at 9:30 p.m. At 7:30, it is also repeating last winter’s “Living with Michael Jackson,” the controversial documentary from U.K. journalist Martin Bashir.

    NBC’s “Dateline” has cleared its schedule to devote its entire broadcast tonight to the Jackson case as well as a special edition tomorrow night. [NY Post]

I find all of this depressing and disgusting and have no desire to see any of it again.
